See You At Sunset

As I prepare for my next DJ event in late February, as well as the coming Spring (my favorite months to be outside with a cocktail and some lounge music), I have been searching high and low for what I like to call … European Lounge! This “genre” of music, as I’ve termed it, can come from all over the world and contain lyrics in different languages. I’m especially attracted to middle eastern and latino lounge, but also enjoy French and Portuguese as well! I hope these songs can take you to a place of relaxation….whether its a small cafe in Paris or the seaside of the Mediterranean.

Believe in Music: 2010 NAMM show & MLK Weekend Events

“Before there was an industry or an association, there was a belief…in music. That belief led to a mission: to unify, lead and strengthen the global music products industry and increase active participation in music making.”

Today is the opening day of the 2010 NAMM show (The National Association of Music Merchants) in Anaheim, CA. The show is from January 14-17 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Invitations open only to industry professionals & their guests.2010 NAMM Show

About Naam: NAMM is a not-for-profit association that unifies, leads and strengthens the $17 billion global musical instruments and products industry. NAMM’s activities and programs are designed to promote music making to people of all ages. NAMM is comprised of more than 9,000 Member companies.

With a plethora of international retailers, manufacturers, and instruments, the 2010 NAMM show promises to offer the most innovative, newest products to a slew of anxiously awaiting consumers. With 250 exhibitors, the show is also expecting a substantial amount of celebrity appearances, such as Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, Yoko Ono, Quincy Jones and more! The NAMM show is not only a place to view these new products, but a playground to explore and learn about the most recent technologies through training seminars, meetings, and personal mentoring.

Among other events this MLK weekend, I am VERY excited to attend the NAMM show! (I will hopefully be posting pictures after I attend on Saturday). Other exciting events are happening this weekend in LA that I’d like to share:

The Living Moment is Everything

My deepest apologies for such a long absence throughout the end of December. I hereby promise to not leave you all waiting any longer for new music and new posts! First and foremost, I wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year! Even though it feels like it’s just another day, the start of 2010 is finally upon us. At the end of December, my family unexpectedly lost a loved one. Even though this tragic event is still a wound waiting to heal, it has inspired me to theme this post today about living in the moment. May 2010 be another beginning for you, a clean slate where you can map out your aspirations and dreams, forgive and forget, listen and learn, and most importantly a chance for you to love…

As usual, some inspirational quotes to get started:

T. S. Eliot – “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

D.H. Lawrence – “The living moment is everything.”
